Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Viña Almate Garnacha was sourced from a diversity of vineyards in and around Peñafiel. The grapes were hand picked the third week of October and fermented with full clusters in stainless steel tanks, followed by one year in 500-liter French oak barrels. It had an evolved profile with notes of decayed leaves and a clean nose, not so fruity. I found it surprisingly tannic and with little Garnacha character. 1,000 bottles were filled in January 2016.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Fermented with indigenous yeasts with whole harvest (full clusters). Aged for 15 months in 500-liter French oak barrels.
